    I'm sorry... what?

    :rofl:


    This is just about forgiveable.

    Had it been a 4, though....
    I'd never get the 4 :no: Btw, I still dislike Apple

    Even if it's really crap, it's worth a punt at that price!

    I really hate how they describe it as an "iPad-like touch-screen laptop" as if iPads are already the standard. It is not - it is a tablet computer, it's not hard to understand :dry:

    TBF, most tablets are controlled by a stylus rather than your fingers. So the iPad is pretty much the standard for that at the moment, for better or for worse.

    All the same, the iPad is a brand. There are plenty of finger-controlled tablet computers around nowadays anyway

    Thing is, it's actually a good phone. You can see they've put a lot of thought into usability and the things people would commonly "do wrong" and compensates for them. It's just a shame it's made by Apple. Oh and I'm not one of those people who instead of going "oh I'll just get my phone..." will say "oh I'll just get my iPhone :sexface:" :p:

    A cunning trick...I'm going to remember that.
    I'm also going to think on it.
    One thing worth noting is that you only need one scheduled task - you could set something up to read arguments passed by the shortcut and run a program based on that.
    Just something which saves having to clog your scheduled tasks list.

    What's the end intention?

    Why are you using UAC? it's an archaically awful implementation of root passes from Ubuntu, and it's not really very secure to start with, seeing as now most Windows components in Windows 7 have self elevation. Surely adequate third party protection is the way forward?

    I forgive you if you're on Vista BTW, it's actually got a better system, even though it nags too much.

    UAC isn't a bad idea as such, though it won't get in the way of a decent hacker. Then again, a poorly-protected *nix box is an equal target, perhaps even easier than a Windows box. :holmes:

    Has to be said, Windows version of ACL (i.e. group permissions) is far more advanced than Unix, whose permissions system I absolutely detest. It's a real shame that file permissions have to be so basic in Unix, the system would be far more versatile if it was a bit more complex.

    running CCleaner for example!:p:

    im trying to use it on another desktop that has an ancient epson printer, which will only print if the program is run as admin.
    im trying to get a neat way of opening word/excel, for example, without the UAC prompt.
    at the moment, it will only work on the user that created the task
